Nominate a Direct Support Professional to enter them into a raffle for a $100 Amazon gift card!

Each September, our community comes together to celebrate the Direct Support Professionals (DSP) who make such an important impact in the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The work of a DSP is complex and highly specialized, as they support every aspect of an individual’s daily life on a unique, person-by-person basis. These unsung heroes act as a lifeline for people with disabilities under normal circumstances.

In celebration of this year’s DSP Recognition Week, eVero will select 10 DSPs at random to win $100 Amazon gift cards. Please visit below to access the nomination form and let us know a little bit about your favorite DSP!

Direct Support Professional Recognition Week (September 13–19, 2020) is a great opportunity to highlight the dedicated, innovative direct support workforce that is the heart and soul of supports for people with disabilities. We hope that you will use this opportunity to highlight the important work of direct support professionals nationwide, but especially those in your life, whether they work for your agency, support you or a loved one, or simply work to make a difference in your community. Your celebrations of the DSPs at the heart of our field are part of a nationwide party we throw every year to showcase the amazing and often unsung work of these incredible professionals, and mark just a small fraction of the recognition that they deserve throughout the year. View the ANCOR web page for more information and resources you can use to participate!
